We shall be having the IRI Moving Convention this year - ONE week long. Route: BCT -> ADI -> JP -> NDLS -> BSB -> HWH -> MAS -> SBC. Dates: July 9 to July 17 Jul 9: BCT -> ADI Jul 10: ADI -> JP Jul 11: JP -> NDLS Jul 12: NDLS -> BSB Jul 13: BSB->HWH Jul 14: HWH->MAS Jul 16: MAS->SBC BSB->HWH and HWH->MAS are already fixed. Other train schedules will be announced shortly. . 1. A few of us will be travelling/RFing the entire distance, and writing our Trip Diary. En route, it is hoped that other members congregate for joint Rail Fanning sessions and use this opportunity to socialize with each other, either at the stations or for short train rides along the way. ALL IRI Members are invited to participate. . 2. We shall dedicate a complete, separate section/Forum of the site for the weeklong "festival". Myself and anyone else who is part of this Convention will write our travelogue/describe our experiences, who we meet, what we do - either IRI members or other travelling passengers. Maybe we'll also do "interviews" of other travelling people (if they consent), how they use trains, etc. All the RF Fun we are having will be logged in our Convention tab, so that people who are comfortably sitting at home are able to take part in the joy of travelling. . 3. We shall have a separate "Registration" for this event. NO fees, commitments or any other payment is required. ONLY, members will be expressing interest in meeting the "IRI Express" at their specified nearest station. If you would like to travel with us, then you will have to do your OWN ticketing and reservations. Registration is required so that other members know who they can EXPECT to meet at the spots. . 4. At BCT, ADI, JP, NDLS, BSB, HWH, MAS and SBC, IF we have critical mass (more than 20 Registrations at that city), IRI will host a banquet lunch/dinner at that city, so that all of us can sit together, enjoy good food and have some good old-fashioned RF talk for a couple of hours. . We have about 3 months left for the Convention - so there is adequate time for discussion/planning/deciding. There are no deadlines for you to make up your mind, but you have to do your own ticket bookings. More details will be available shortly. . TL;DR. 1. One week long Moving RF Convention. 2. Full section of the site devoted to the Convention. 3. No Fees. No commitments. No deadlines. Make up your mind whenever you want - even at the last minute. Members make their OWN bookings/travel arrangements to participate and socialize with each other. 4. Banquet/lunch hosted by IRI if we have critical mass (more than 20 attendees) at the different cities. . Thanks.

At this time, the PNR Forum is functioning again, albeit at a greatly reduced volume and efficiency. Refreshing PNRs is a very cumbersome affair. We may expect this to end as well, eventually, as the Govt. tightens these controls further. At IRI, we CANNOT waste any more time on this fruitless...
The following changes are being introduced to keep the PNR Forum functioning.
1. A "bookmarklet" called "PNR Refresh" has been created. Just Copy/Paste a small piece of text into your browser bookmarks. The bookmarklet will be available by morning.
2. When you click on Post/Update/Refresh PNR, you will be taken to the Official...
The PNR Forum as we know it is OVER. The official website has unilaterally decided to thoroughly block and shut down all access to PNR info. We had put in MANY, many years of PAINSTAKING effort to develop the PNR Prediction infrastructure, and our Sr. Legendary Members have helped countless people...
Starting Monday, we shall be starting the slow Test rollout of our new app - called RailFan.
What is RailFan?
It is expected that RailFan will be the future of the IRI site for mobile phones. A full dedicated offline-capable messaging/blogging app, encompassing all the features of the IRI site. The RailFan app...
There are some minor changes to the PNR Forum:
1. The main PNR feed will only show UN-predicted (by you) PNRs which are coming in. However, if there are replies, the PNR will show and will bubble to the top. Once you predict the PNR, it will go away from the main...
This is an advance notice of a new feature that will be introduced within the next couple of days. The feature is called "Spottings".
1. Any time you see a train ANYWHERE - while railfanning, while travelling in a train, while visiting a station, seeing someone off, receiving someone, while your train...
